We always welcome April showers in our garden. It is the time when we see the garden come back to life from the ground. Almost overnight there is so much bright green everywhere. The crocus on the right were sprigs of green right before the flowers appeared.
Well before these crocus thought of springing out of the ground, the planning began for the Vegetable Garden. We use crop rotation to keep the group from becoming overwork. When the snow was still falling, back in early February, the layout began.
The first seeds went int the garden in Much. Thank you peas for being able to withstand the fluctuating temperatures of late March & early April.
Shortly after the peas were planted the Mustard & Mesclun went into the garden. These seeds were started in early March. Happy to say the first harvest will be this week for fresh greens from the garden. Welcome to home grown in April. The best thing when making a meal is to have fresh from your own backyard garden.
Why would you want a garden you may ask?
- Pride / satisfaction of success
- Control of the process
- Non-GMO crops
- Beneficial guests in the garden
We welcome input from our readers. The best way to know exactly what people are looking for is to have them request it. We do our best to accommodate customer requests. Copper teardrops are one answer to - more copper pieces please. These are a new earring design that is proving to be popular. Shown in all natural copper, teardrops catch the light as they move & are very lightweight. They are available in both large and small sizes.
Happy dance for this design and a few others recently in copper. More on the new copper pieces in a future blog post.
Custom cut gemstone cabochons are one of our passions. This plume agate showcases the beauty Mother Nature puts into her work. We take pride in discovering the beauty inside each stone and showing it to you. These gemstones are available to be set into a special piece for your gift giving pleasure.
Another way we share the gems is to sell wholesale to other jewelry designers in the area and worldwide.
